The editors didn't like

  • While speedy
  • Fast HDD's still have painfully slow seeks as compared to SSD's

  • The "which drive" conflict has raged for a long time. The self-same people who thought the original VelociRaptor was too expensive for the tiny capacity then moved on to complaining how Solid State Drives are too expensive for their tiny capacity.As someo...

  • Abstract:  The Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB and VelociRaptor 600GB are two of the fastest SATA hard drives money can buy. HDD performance almost always comes at an acoustic price, but are these drives quieter than the predecessors, and do their speed/capacity...

  • The Western Digital Velociraptor is the fastest hard drive we have currently reviewed and it still proves that in many cases, hard drives are still faster than SSDs and the ever increasing size of SSDs still has not matched that capabilities and capaci...

  • After taking a look at all these benchmarks we come to a single question: Is the hefty price tag of $260 really worth the gains? This depends on what exactly you are looking for. SSDs will offer better performance, but at the $260 getting a good one ...

  • Abstract:  At 10,000 rpm, the Western Digital VelociRaptor WD6000HLHX drive certainly spins faster than the competition. But do faster rotations per minute translate into faster performance? VelociRaptor drives have been out for two years; PC World Labs tests, ho...
